, south carolina picked mitt romney over president obama by 11 points. south carolina was a very red state this past time around. but south carolina's first congressional district is even redder than the whole state. in the first congressional district in south carolina, mitt romney beat president obama not by 11 points, the state wide margin, but by 18 points. and that very republican district is the district that is about to have a special election tomorrow to pick a new member of congress. and because it is such a republican district, you would expect any republican to have a huge advantage heading into tomorrow's voting. but instead, in this particular district, in south carolina, heading into tomorrow's voting, it is essentially a jump ball, a tied game. that is because the republicans did not pick just any republican for this congressional race. they picked this guy. >> i've let down a lot of people. i've been unfaithful to my wife. started out as a dear, dear friend from argentina, it began very innocently. about a year ago it sparked into something more than that. i have seen her t

[cheers] >> bill: part of president obama's platform last fall was the assertion that on his watch terror agencies were badly damaged. but if organized terrorists did indeed kill ambassador stevens, that claim would have been dubious. a few weeks after the benghazi attack, fox news analyst charles krauthammer said this. >> of course it effects the president because just a week earlier they had been proclaiming the death of bin laden, of course, and by implication and often by statement at charlotte over and over again how they had disseminated and removed the threat from al qaeda. and this is a dir
obama. if it involves unnamed people at the state department or i told xy this, then it just goes aways. it's the same thing that happened with watergate. once it started to hill, nixon's big guns, right up there, and then nixon started to literally sweat about it, then everybody, the folks started to pay attention. but if it's gonna be wishy washy in the hearing on wednesday, and, believe me, the democrats are going to try to make it such, folks aren't going to engage. >> yeah. well, look, a couple of -- first of all, i think you are right, there needs to be more to this than we have seen thus far there is a lot here. there is an excellent piece out by steve hayes and "the weekly standard" that draws this for the first time right into the white house on the afternoon of the 14th of september, friday afternoon, at about 6:52 in the evening. early evening, they send out and draft talking points that have been really finalized just before noon earlier that day at the cia. and they are sent out. and literally within 40 minutes the spokesman at the state department, sick tore i can't new la

circumstance? >> i think -- you know, when president obama looks at what's real important to the uted states, stopping iran from getting nuclear weapons, he's made it very clear that's something he's prepared to do if necessary and he's explained why he thinks that would dramatically change the balance of power in the region as well as efforts to prevent spread of nuclear weapons. so to the extent that he can avoid getting dragged into these other kinds of conflict which is will dissipate u.s. resources and suck up time and energy, it may make sense for him to save his powder if it becomes necessary to attack iran. and we don't know, of course, whether that's going happen. but that may be a queion that gets put to obama in the next year or two. >> rose: it's probably going to be with him through the rest of his term, isn't it? >> unless we get a diplomatic deal which i think is pretty unlikely. >> rose: there is no diplomacy working is it? >> i think it's because the supreme leader doesn't want a deal. we've put a lot of different ideas on the table and he, frankly, hasn't engaged with us i

obama's vision of a world without nuclear weapons should start on the korean peninsula and we stated that we would continue to strengthly urge north korea in close concert with the other members of the six-party talks and the international community to faithfully abide by its international obligations under the september 19 joint statement and the relevant ecurity council resolutions. korea and the u.s. will work jointly to induce north korea to make the right choice through multifaceted efforts including the implementation of the korean peninsula trust building process that i had spelled out. i take this opportunity to once again send a clear message, north korea will not be able to survive if it only clings to developing its nuclear weapons at the expense of its people's happiness. concurrently pursuing nuclear arsenals and economic development can by no means succeed. this is the shared view of the other members of the six-party talks and the international community. however, should north korea choose the path to becoming a responsible member of the community of nations, we are wi

that this could be a slippery slope to a much deeper kind of engagement with heavy costs to the united states. in my sense what barack obama would like to see and is not getting as an option is a way to have a small footprint intervention that changed this. so i think that the interesting thing is to watch the caution with which israel has been behaving, the surgical way in which it took out these weapons. i imagine that's exactly the same kind of thing that the united states would like to do with securing the chemical weapons in one way or another and not turning this into an effort against the broader assad regime and making the u.s. as a principal player inside syria's civil war. so i think what's interesting about mccain and others is that they'd like to see these initiatives around chemical weapons lead to a broader occasion to topple assad. i think that the white house is positioning itself, if it does take action, to be only as narrowly focused on the chemical weapons and not really to become more deeply engaged in trying to topple the assad regime. >> brown: of course the question, mi
